steal it and get caught up to us that quickly. >>> now to romney's swing state of hope. so, the latest polling out of north carolina, if it's any indication, you could see romney's demise in swing states has been great lly exaggerated. romney is now leading in north carolina by four percentage points. last week, we showed you another poll from the state which had the president ahead by two points. this is pretty incredible and nationally, our new poll shows the president ahead by three points. as you can see, that's within the margin of error. is this new momentum for the romney campaign going to be enough? ben and tara, good to see you. i know you have been out here, jen was out here saying on friday, look, we're always going to play like we're five points behind, but are you worried when you see polls like this? >> well, you know, we never thought we were going to win these battleground states by ten points. this has been a closer competitive race for the past year and a half. but you saw in the poll cnn had today in which the president has reraced mitt romney's edge on the economy.

key battleground stat states. topping our political headlines, mitt romney going after president obama on foreign policy today. in his weekly podcast, romney said the president is fumbling his response to events in the middle east. >> this week, when president obama was asked about the recent disruption and chaos and violence in the middle east, he said that these were merely bumps in the road. that casual assessment of shocking events reveals that the president really doesn't understand the gravity of the challenges that we face in the broader middle east. >> meanwhile, the obama campaign is out with a new ad, it takes aim at romney's experience at bain capital, spotlighting workers who said they lost their jobs because governor romney was more concerned about short-term profits than creating jobs. >> people need to know what mitt romney did to miriam, indiana, in 1994. >> you don't just come in and take everything everybody's got and destroy a business. i mean, that's what they did. >> when you take away all the good-paying jobs such as we had here at gst steel in kansas city, the mi
governor romney for the first time gets on the same stage as the president of the united states, people can make a direct comparison about them and their visions for the future and wednesday night is the restart of the campaign and i think you'll start to see the numbers move back in the other direction. >> how do you restart the campaign, governor, at the last moment where you can reach tens of millions of people. why isn't it too late to believe that the presidential debates, after you announce your running mate, after you have a convention, that you can restart with the presidential debates? >> absolutely. you're going to have tens of millions of people for the very first time, david, really tuning in and paying attention to this race. and also, for the first time you're going to have them be able to make a direct side-by-side comparison. remember, the end of the day, campaigns are about the candidates. they're going to be able to see these two candidates next to each other, debating each other and governor romney, i know is going to do a great job wednesday night of laying out his visio
in the battleground states. >>> mitt romney could make a huge impact on the supreme court. how he could change the direction of the court for decades. >>> they make $10 a day to put their lives on the line. but they could lose their job ifs they don't lose some weight. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're now just 36 days from the presidential election and nationally our brand-new cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows the race between president obama and governor romney remaining up for grabs. the president leads 50% to 47%. but his three-point margin is within the poll's sampling error. our chief national correspondent john king is in denver getting ready for the debate over there. that's the site of the debate. john, take us into these numbers. what are you seeing? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you this, talking to senior officials in the romney campaign, they believe after a tough week or ten days, the last several days, they have a little bit of a breeze at their back. they say the race has stabilized. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in
approval rating, romney favorability, and who wins on the economy. in three states, the president had a job approval rating of 49 or above. romney's unfavorable rating was higher than his favorable rating, and the president led romney on the economy. in three of those stays, iowa, ohio, new hampshire. just one state did you have the president's job approval rating 48% or over and romney winning on the issue of the economy. that's north carolina. if you look at it that way and go to the map to 270, what does that mean, and you put those four states into the respective categories, and look at. this the president for suur sho. romney a long way to go has to sweep the rest. there are five left in the background. florida, virginia, wisconsin, colorado, nevada. this is where if romney does do what chris christie said he will do, the first place you'll see it are in the five states that are left. >> ralph reed, that's a lot of movement that has to take place to overcome where the campaign is. yet you heard chris christie say it this morning on the program, we'll have a new dynamic come thursday mo
four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that the president has in these states, you see something fascinating. >> it is. i call it the empathy question. which candidate is seen as advancing the interest of the middle class? you see the president up by 25 points on that question in florida, by 19 points in ohio. and that is of course what people vote on. because everybody says they're middle class. so this is essentially asking, who's the fellow who cares more about my interests? and with obama up by those considerable double digits, it's very, very difficult for mitt romney. >> puts the pressure on romney in these presidential debates, the first one a we
it in those swing states. and that's because mitt romney played defense a lot of the first half of this year. whether it was in the primaries or in may, when the primary was finally over, and the obama campaign really started to hit him hard on his bain record. there hasn't an opening or an effective way for him to articulate a vision to turning the economy around. and it shows in the poll numbers. >> lynn, if governor romney can't hang this economy over the president's neck in the next three or four weeks, is there a chance he can beat him? >> of course there is one big blooper from obama, and the mistake may certainly change the trajectory of the campaign. but garrett made a very good point. i want to quickly build on another reason why obama might have dealt with housing today. he's doing his debate prep in a suburb of las vegas. where is he now that it's hard hit? so, again, this is another reason -- a reason he's camped out there, deliberately, so to try to bolster his support in nevada. and again, i think he's just prophylactically building a community around himself, dealing with hous
are siding with president obama. romney at 41%. that's an average of the swing states you point out. many states i believe 30 plus, are voting right now. ohio, i believe tomorrow starts its early voting. when you look at a moment that's supposed to be, michael, a game changer, and the candidate is rehearsing zingers, as reported with "the new york times" what could change the whole momentum in 37 days? haven't we heard already a pluts ra of information -- plethora of information from mitt romney, both vague when it comes to tax loopholes and maybe specifics when he talks about the 47%? >> i don't know that zingers necessarily turn it around. john harwood had a great piece in today's "new york times" talking about how rarely does a debate alter the outcome of a presidential race. so, you know, a good one liner may take -- get people to take notice but i don't think it turns around the momentum. he needs to completely right this ship because ever since the 47%, and the president clinton speech at the debate, the momentum has gone completely against him. >> i'm going to bring in chris. one m
senate repuan annnced m romney. he was able to wi t state, and even though he had some credentials, he was ahead of the ub forroh at one time, and so this is a state that haseen trendiittlng a le more republican in recent years. they have a republican governor now replacing the outgoing democratic governor ed rendell, and i th r tmney campaig senses an opportunity here, but haveo advertisi dollars in. you have to back up that talk of edicti a w in pennsylvania hat the romney so far campaign has done that. i asked ayaide, well, do you have any plans to do that he said that's for us to know and for the obama campaign to worry about. perhaps setting some expectations here in pennsylvania as well, suzanne. >> all right. thank you very much. >>> i want to you stick around. just get started with politics at the half hour. we'ring to seeheate numbs on the ecomy, how it's playing out for both candidates. how high the stakes are f loo wednesday night's debate. owerteam, of course, is trying pectations. and we're going to tell you what your favorite brand of beer says about your politics. all t
, and behind in the battle gowned states so the pressure is on governor romney to change the dynamics of the debate. he's going to help that he can think on his feet and come up with real spontaneous responses, the fact that he's too scripted has actually worked against him. the president has to turn in a work man like performance kind of like he did at the convention, nothing that's spectacular, but nothing that loses him any ground. but a lot of pressure on romney. >> same question to you, wayne, on which one has the more pressure on him factor. >> it's really both, certainly given the way the race has been going, mitt romney has been a lot to prove, this could be a big make or break moment for him. but the way expectations have been set, which is to say that romney, after performing poorly sometimes on the stump and not as well as president obama which of course is lauded for his great oratory, i think people expect a lot from president obama, so if he does turn in a work man like performance, or if he falls into any of his traps, if he looks peevish, anything along those lines, he
the swingiest of the swing states. if the romney/ryan ticket has a hope of winning in colorado and other battleground states, they are going to have to explain the math. they can't carry it for 36 days without doing so. chris wallace made an attempt. i bet you the debate on wednesday night makes an attempt. this time 50 to 60 million people will be watching. if mitt romney doesn't give more details, he's going to look bad. >> why are they running with this new strategy of attacking the president on national security? >> well, as you said, it's kind of throw it against the wall and see what sticks strategy. they haven't been able to compare the president to a man who many think of as not a successful democratic president, that is jimmy carter, on domestic affairs. they tried, but they haven't succeeded. so they are desperate to make that carter analogy any way they can. they are probing for weaknesses in the record. what they should have been doing all along is running against president obama's record on the economy. that's what they should have down. the latest "washington post" poll sho
. the number one wind energy growth state in the country. romney is against the production tax credit. what do you think of president obama's policies, including the all of the above strategy with respect to natural gas? >> well, i will say that first of all he did the right thing in trying to invest in wind and solar. now, some of the investments didn't work out but their failure rate wasn't any -- was certainly lower than what would be obtained from investing in nuclear. nuclear is a -- is dead on wall street. and the government's trying to prop it up with loan guarantees. i don't agree with that. i agree with the solar investment. even president obama, at the convention, if you look at his speech, he mentions coal. now, as far as natural gas the glut is there. there are issues with fracking. it cannot be ignored. and so that's -- you know, but the economics that are underlying this election actually are arguing against coal. i think the long-term prospects that we ought to give the coal miners a enable them t
, you're right. mitt romney did predict he's going to win the state of pennsylvania come november. but even though his campaign has mainly been a focus on fixing the nation's economy, mitt romney in recent days has been stepping up his attacks on the president on the issue of national security. and specifically lately on who's a better friend of israel. and there are signs the obama campaign is paying attention. at a military academy in pennsylvania, mitt romney tried to make the case for a new commander in chief. romney once again questioned the president's recent description of events in the middle east as bumps in the road. >> i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuclear a bump in the road. we need someone who recognizes the seriousness of what's ahead and is willing to lead. >> reporter: romney's tough talk on iran follows israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu's drawing attention at the united nations to the nuclear worries. >> a red line should be drawn right here. >> reporter: just days after the president declined to meet with netanyahu in new york, the two leade
almost impossible for mitt romney in those states and they are responding largely to the economic message, the bain arguments, the 47 arguments, medicare, taxes. that is where it seems to be doing damage to romney. >> you asked the question would you say you were better off than you were during the 2008 presidential election. 31% thought they were better off. 31% worse off. same, 34%. that same 34%, but how are they lining up? >> this is really interesting. this is the question that republicans want to center the election on. are you better off than you were four years ago. and not surprisingly among the roughly one-third who say they are better off, president obama is prerge dominantly, and the ones who say they're worse off mitt romney is winning 10-1. but what is striking to me, the remaining third, president obama is ahead substantially by almost 25 points, 57-34 i believe was the number. >> right. the question was finances has have not changed since 2008. >> so that means that romney is faring poorly on the choice. >> they're saying they're kind of ambivalent about obama's performanc
of the united states, governor romney. i am so proud of this ticket. that me tell you i am also proud of paul ryan. i wore my miami university tie. here is what we have to do. we know the race is going to come down to the wire. we have always known it is going to be close. it is going to come down to last. it is going to come down to one states, oh -- >> io. >> we have to do our job. absentee ballots. if you'd have a friend who does not have an absentee ballot, tell them how to apply and get it. it is easy. make sure your parents have their ballots. if you have a daughter or a son in college, e-mail them, i did that to my daughter last night. she came back to me within about five minutes. dad, i have already done it and applied. that is what we need to do. when we think about this election, it really is about our kids and grandkids, where do we want to be in the year 2016? imagine the difference. one person has one division and what made this country and the other has another vision, it comes down to the simple question, who do you think bill to this country? who built it? was that the govern
the state's senior citizens, biden said romney's plan to lower taxes would force the nation's elderly to pick up the tab. >> their plan they have for social security, the one they have now, would raise taxes on your social security. >> reporter: romney, who has accused the president of misleading the public on the subject of taxes repeated his pledge on the issue. >> i will not raise taxes on middle income americans. >> reporter: less than one week from his debate withhe president, romney is trying to expand the election map boldly predicting twice during his visit to pennsylvia that he can win here. >> you know, i've got l secret here. and that is that obama campaign thinks pennsylvania's in their pocket. they don't need to worry about it. and you're right and they're wrong. we're going to win pennsylvania. we're going to take the white house. >> reporter: it could be a questionable move. not only does romney have ground to make up in swing states like ohio and florida, the latest cnn poll of polls in pennsylvania shows romney trailing the president by ten points. republicans have t

. but first, to politics. >>> mitt romney is venturing out of the swing states today. romney this hour is trying to pluck pennsylvania from the grasp of president obama with just 39 days until the election. pennsylvania's one of the states that is leaning toward obama, but not -- so, jim, we have been seeing romney confine his campaign to the nine swing states, why is he taking a shot at a state that has been leaning obama? >> reporter: yeah, fredricka, it did catch a lot of people off guard today to hear mitt romney not only at a fund-raiser earlier this morning but at an event that wrapped up here at a valley forge military academy. he said he'll win the state of pennsylvania and this state has not traditionally in the last several months been lumped in with the other swing states out there that both president obama and mitt romney are neck and neck in. we have seen a lot of swing states in recent days moving away from mitt romney. you saw the latest battleground polls in ohio and florida where president obama increased his lead over mitt romney, but just a few moments ago here at th
with victories in 21 states and washington, d.c. mitt romney would win 23 states, which would net him 206 electoral votes. to win, the republican presidential nominee would have to win six swing states, which are still up for grabs. he'd also need president obama to lose in ohio or iowa. the ap has him winning both states right now. also right now, president obama is in nevada preparing for wednesday night's first debate. senator john kerry is playing the role of mitt romney in the debate preps. the president many ka pacampaig night in las vegas. he asked supporters at this virginia high school to keep believing in him. the president does not have any events scheduled for today so he can focus on preparing for wednesday night. mitt romney is hoping the debate gives the presidential nominee a much needed boost. a supporter calls wednesday night the restart of this campaign. romney will hold a rally tonight in denver where the debate will take place. >>> nationals get another shot to clinch a division title today. this time they'll be able to do it in front of the d.c. faithful. the nats co
